  • Luis Ruelas comforted his wife Teresa Giudice after the latter's "DWTS" elimination
  • He shared some words of encouragement for the "Real Housewives" star via Instagram
  • Fans complimented the New Jersey-based businessman's support for his spouse

Teresa Giudice received some words of comfort and encouragement from her husband, Luis "Louie" Ruelas, following her shocking elimination from "Dancing with the Stars" earlier this week.

On Wednesday, the 47-year-old businessman took to Instagram to share photos of him and the 50-year-old reality star and accompanied the post with a lengthy message dedicated to the latter.

"Congratulations, babe [red heart emoji]. We are all so very proud of you! Win or lose, you are always the winner in our eyes every day!" he wrote in the caption.

Ruelas continued, "Your dedication to leaning into the unknown and becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable is mind-blowing and a lesson for all of us."

Giudice's husband then grabbed the chance to thank her pro dance partner Pasha Pashkov "for being an amazing partner [and] soul." Ruelas also thanked the entire "DWTS" Season 31 crew for their support to his wife.

The "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star quickly responded to her husband's post, saying she wouldn't be able to bravely perform on the "DWTS" dance floor without his support.

Fans were touched by the couple's support for each other, so they showered Ruelas' post with positive messages for the two.

"Love to see this type of support," one wrote.

"Best husband ever!! [You are] inspiring," another added.

"She did great!! Continuing to vote for Teresa in life. Love, love, love," a third user commented.

During the Week 2 elimination of the show, Giudice and Pashkov landed in the bottom two along with Cheryl Ladd and Louis van Amstel. When it came to the judge's decision, Teresa and Pasha were sent packing.

After the announcement, the "RHONJ" star broke her silence on Instagram by expressing her gratitude to her dance partner, her husband and her children for supporting her throughout her stint on the show. She also thanked everyone who voted for her.

Meanwhile, Teresa's ex-husband, Joe Giudice, released a statement after her elimination. The former Bravo star said he was glad Teresa made it to the second show, and he was so proud of her.

Joe had been very supportive of Teresa ever since her casting for the 31st season of the ballroom dance competition was announced. He even encouraged his followers on social media to vote for his wife, earning him compliments from fans who were moved by his support for his ex.

Joe and Teresa share four kids, Gia, 21, Gabriella, 17, Milania, 16, and Audriana, 13.
